OK, but what does it mean, "SCP"? How I can I reproduce it? What version of Vandyke server are you using. I suppose that it is Windows version, is it?

Well, SPC:/ is my "home" directory. When I log in the server, Im automatically moved to this directory.

With other programs like PSFTP I can change to the root directory, which is not SPC:/.

Its a really weird problem. Doesnt matter if I type ".." or "cd /", the result is always coming back to SPC:/.

As you can see, the log doesnt show any error message. What could be happening?

cannot change to root directory after login

Hello,

Im trying to connect to a SFTP and everything works fine BUT I cannot change to the ROOT directory. For instance, I login in the server automatically in my home diretory called "/stuff". When I try to issue any comand (cd /, ..) to go to root, the window is refresh but I remain in the same directory. :cry:

I tried this using both command line and GUI interfaces.

Thanks in advance
